I'd like to see a place where users can submit FPP requests to the general MeFi populace, and where users can respond at their will to said requests.

I enjoy learning about subjects through MeFi FPP's and their threads. It feels much more dynamic than just reading a Wiki page or just netscouring myself. MeFites take me to unexpected places, which is something I've really cherished about MeFi.
I can see where a Pony like this can be construed as more of a "wanting to steer" than "going with the Me-Fi-Flow," but I find that even where the subject matter is something I think I know, you lot always surprise me in opening another door, another window to let the soft scent of the neighbor's fabric softener in.
So, say, I think to myself upon writing that, "I'd like to see an FPP of cool-ass 1970's or 1980's commercial product iconography,"* and I could post it somewhere, I bet someone out there would totally pick up the ball and run with it, all MeFi-style, dodgin' tight ends and snarky comments, going... all... the... way...! And I'd be all, like, in the bleachers goin' YEAH!! with about a dozen to maybe a couple hundred others.
That star could be YOU!!
